Over Christmas I was a knitting fool and I have to say that even tho I am not an expert by any means I have pretty decent results after only 2 months of knitting. Finally, after a scarf and several hats, I decided to expand my skills and made my first pair of socks. The pattern I chose was this one: http://knitting.about.com/library/blthreesock.htm  I used Adriafil Point, which I have decided I love the tweeds in the yarn. I also made a hat for my 5 year old niece. She loves cats and I am partial to the Hello Kitty cat so I knitted a basic hat and crocheted a two ears on and a bow. I decided, after working at it several times, to forgo the eyes and nose.I couldn't get it to look anything but stupid. It is my 3 year old son modeling the hat. He is a bit of a ham.

I did the ribbing with the same needle as the rest so it stretches a bit more than looks appealing but I like it because I have a habit of scrunching my socks down:

I love hello kitty and I adore that hello kitty hat!! What a great idea!  I've seen the kitty hat patterns but the hello kitty hat, now that is really unique and awesome.  I might have to try one, I am neither 5 nor 3 years old but I don't think that's going to stop me!!!!  Cheesy

Thank you for the kind words. The kitty hat is pretty simple so easy to make, easier for me to crochet the ears, but I am certain they can e knitted somehow too. I am just not talented enough in the knitting field yet to figure out how.

lol, gracious, to be honest I cant even tell you which hat pattern I used. I just kind of winged it  I knitted the hat then decided on the placement of the ears, once I decided that I picked up stitches, kinda and ch 3 then 4 dc, i think, then chained 2 and 2 hdc then ch 1 and sc and finished off. I think.... It was more just trial and error and I didnt keep notes. I am sure there was a much easier way than how I did it.
